Archetype. It means an original pattern of which all other similar persons, objects, or concepts are derived, copied, modeled, or emulated.
Basically, archetypes come from the basic personality types that make up all people. And we take those strong personality types to create our larger-than-life characters. I think, the more thought and planning one puts into developing a fictional character, by weaving in a few realistic traits, the more three dimensional of a character ends up coming alive on the pages.
These are our Frodo's, our Aslan's, Harry's, Peter Pan's and I can go on. Those characters that stick with us, are unforgettable and so realistic that readers talk and think about them as if they were real people, indeed.
Today, I'll go over some of the archetypes that are most popular. These are ones that have resonated most over the past generations of literature.

The crafty sorcerer was after Kardia and her Sano healing powers all along.
Kardia must find a way out of the contract before the allotted time is up, or their good fortunes and answered wishes will end up costing the townspeople of Goia their freedom and Kardia her life...
